Nope!
She-Hulk (2005-2009) #1 - Dan Slott,Juan Bobillo,Greg Horn

This posits that Jennifer Walters is a smart, studious lawyer, and She-Hulk is an uncontrollable party girl.   It's actually an intriguing supposition, if it hadn't been dealt with the way it had been. 

 

See, Jennifer Walters is embarrassed that people might sleep with She-Hulk and wake up to see her.   It's the look on their faces that make her want to be She-Hulk all the time.   And again, this could be an interesting conundrum, if only Jennifer thought about this.   (Like the way the model she's dating tells her she's too shallow.   She just fumes, instead of considering that maybe if she spent more time as Jennifer she'd be less shallow - since that's what this book seems to be saying.)

 

There were a couple fun moments, but mostly I really didn't like this direction.   She-Hulk did feel shallow, and portraying her as a bimbo didn't make sense to me given how others seemed to worship She-Hulk until Jennifer thought it was better to be She-Hulk.   I find Jennifer to be not only more thoughtful - of others, as well as more thoughtful in general - but also more interesting, so I wasn't happy with the direction this went in, to be honest. 

 

The art was actually nice, but not enough to save this book from the writing.

The nine-year-old liked this one when she read it for school. A friend who is a children's librarian told me it's boring. I agree with the librarian. 

 

I tried this one earlier in the year and gave up after about seven pages. I managed it this time by skimming every time I thought about quitting. I can kind of see the appeal for a kid, but as an adult I just don't get it. I'm also not a fan of the representation of Chinese, Native American and Polynesian people in the book. On one hand, I'm glad they were included but on the other hand no to stereotypical representation. It's nothing unexpected from a book written in the 1960s, but disappointing all the same.

De vliegeraar
De vliegeraar - Khaled Hosseini,Miebeth van Horn Ik heb de film jaren geleden gezien, en ik heb een graphic novel van dit boek, maar het volledige verhaal heb ik nog nooit gelezen. Tot nu toe.

[a:Khaled Hosseini|569|Khaled Hosseini|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1359753468p2/569.jpg] kan zo goed de omgeving, de sfeer, en de emoties in een boek schrijven.
Het is bijna of je er zelf bij bent.

Een ontzettend ontroerend verhaal over vriendschap, schuldgevoel en moed.
Zeker een aanrader.
